about the good news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegitimize this president, why is he doing well in the toughest states? >> we've talked about what campaign has done wrong. we haven't spent as much time talking about the things obama has done right. obama has done a lot of things right. for one thing, he's just a stronger candidate. he relates to people better. he's more approachable. his favorability rates are higher, while romney has high unfavorability ratings. but obama actually has a set of principles he believes in. so, he has a message that he carries out on the campaign trail over and over again. mitt romney doesn't appear to have anything he believes in so he has spent a lot of the campaign flip-flopping. obama makes early moves that are -- >> i understand you -- >> -- that are doing well for him. >> i believe you understand they made a smart, strategic move to go after the 1% and go after fairness and the whole p
proposals such as double exports, create a million new manufacturing jobs. >> obama: right now, i'm asking you to choose a better path than the one that my opponents offer. one that helps big factories and small businesses double their exports. that sells more goods stamped with made in america than the rest of the world. we can create one million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years with the right policies. >> jennifer: so will the president's argument be enough to help him win ohio as did he, very narrowly in the last election? we'll see. but if we can learn anything from the new polls it's that when it comes to this presidential race, things can change in an instant. for more on the battle for ohio and what's at stake in this election, we turn to washington and perhaps the liberal, progressive in ohio, dennis kucinich. congressman, welcome back inside "the war room." >> governor, good to be with you. >> jennifer: all right. so romney's now showing a new strategy in ohio which is showing empathy. is

the netanyahu government in particular. but i think what's really driving obama right now is he doesn't want anything to happen before november 6th. he doesn't want to meet with any world leaders who might say something off script. he doesn't want to meet with bibi netanyahu and risk another blowdown just before the election. he'd just as soon go through the motions and hope the rest of the world takes a nap for the next six weeks. on september 11th we had a tragedy in banghazi, and security threats to our embassy in cairo. that's the kind of intrusion into the well-oiled obama campaign machinery that he doesn't want to see. >> greta: well, a tweet coming out of government press office gpo israel read something like this. it says, israel official, obama doesn't give a same sense clinton did that he'll be there in things go bad. certainly sounds like if over in israel, among some people in israel, that they have very big doubts about president obama. >> well, they should. look, i think obama fears -- at this moment, i think obama fears an israeli military strike against iran's nuclear weapons

we know it? >> in his speech to the united nations president obama defended the right to free speech even thote creation allowed for the hateful film that stoked the protest in the middle east. he said he will protect the first amendment in the united states. >> moving on to the presidential election. throughout the election season main critized the main stream media for favoring. but is it swaying the election? that's what bill and karl rove are talking about. >> when new's agency like the cbs news on the radio report the polling and it shows that barak obama is leapt to a big league they gets in people's mind and that can only help the president. that helps the president because the perception that he will be the winner? >> right. and this was not easy to dig out the numbers. they are not printed in the website and go into the instrument and dig the data out of there. >> mitt romney's wife ann going on the record with greta discussing the current state of the campaign and what it is like to watch him get critized. >> when you love someone and he's out there putting himself on the l
right back to iowa. everything begins in iowa. and we've got a recent poll that shows president obama has a seven point lead in iowa. so here's the guess. he wants to gets a many early votes in the bank in that state as possible and then move on with his person and his money. >> exactly. everybody knows iowa's that first state that votes in the primary and you caucus calendar and it's family us for that. it was the state that gave president obama -- senator obama his first victory. and he won iowa four years ago in the general election, considered a battleground state. both campaigns really going after it. four years ago goi, 545,000 iowans cast ballots early. and that was almost double what they did eight years prior. so early voting is important in iowa as it is in a bunch of these other states and that's why you're seeing the campaigns really press there not just in october, but now and in august because they knew that a lot of these voters will be casting ballots before the debates. >> when i was a kid, early voting was because you couldn't vote on election day and i know a lot of
obama credit for where the economy is right now, where it's going. his approval rating, his overall approval rating is consistently over 50% now. >> and he's ahead of romney and the other thing, joan, is that the campaign of mitt romney planned on making this whole election a referendum on the president. it seems like it's a referendum on romney and more important than just romney, what he represents. see, i think this election is not just about two personalities, two candidates, but it's two colliding ideas in this country. one built on building the rich and making them more profitable and trickling down the rest of us, where they say it's coming and those that believe in a country that really is there for the average american. >> and the government -- >> that's what this is about. >> right. the government is either going to help the top 1% in the hopes that things will trickle down or government is going to build the middle class like it did in the '40, '50s, and '60s. another interesting thing happened, reverend al, a new study found that we can finally say for the first time tha
, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music venue is the zac brown band which performed at the republican national convention, something that struck me. but they're trying to cut into each other's margins. president obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging them, 50%-44% barack obama in the lead. so he
. >> let's talk about the polls out right now. you have president obama up in a number of battleground states. we know that is far more significance than perhaps looking the national polling out there. mark, i want to play a number of republicans and conserve tifs are saying about the polls themselves. let's play it. >> are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endow them with a false scientific precision they simply don't have. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to them. it depends when you ask and how you ask and what the sample is. >> all of these polls are assuming a very high turnout among afterwardsrican-americans latinos and young people. that produces a skew that makes them vastly more democratic than the actual sample is. >> we know a lot can change and we debates coming up. do you believe those men i just showed believe a word of what they said? >> they have a job, and their job is to paint the best picture possible. >> na means no, right? they don't believe anything they're saying, right? >> i believe they're putting the best face possible on it. that's their job. >> i a
that you wake the [bleep] up. >> all right. now, president obama and mitt romney are of course out on the campaign trail. they both happen to be in virginia today trying to rally their own troops, and then they've even got ads, as well, where they are both facing the camera which always is slightly awkward if you ask me and making their personal appearances saying you got to vote for me and this is my plan. in has ad that president obama has, it's actually two minutes long if you watch the whole thing, he talks patriotism and how there's a new economic patriotism. >> governor romney believes with bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer wall street regulations all of us would brought speaker. he'd double down on the same fiscal policies that got us here in the first place. our economy begins with a strong thriving middle class. >> it also involves everybody paying their fair share and keeping their money here instead of the cayman islands. i wonder who that might refer to. he didn't mention that in the two minutes but it was implicit. j.k. rowling has a book coming out today. back
. not to say that president obama season kind of right saying he had the violence that spreading throughout the middle east is because of the movie. it may be. the four people who are dead aren't dead because of the movie. they're dead because of a terrorism attack. >> dana: who spread the word about the movie? >> greg: that is the question. that is the million-dollar question. we don't have a smoking gun. we have a smoking bazooka. primary source with inside information, which means the three major networks are going to ignore it. which means the real story is where is the story about the film come from? where is the primary source? who decided that the film was at fault? some enterprising journalist, somebody with more time than any of us should find out where that started. in this case, you don't follow the money, you follow the means. >> bob: can i follow what he said here? he has his own problems in libya, which is severe. part of the country where more and more terrorist groups are coming in. they're not connected with al-qaeda. but they take the name. his local politics to deal with
. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among white working-class voters. mccain taken by over 30 points in 2008. so is romney at this point but it's
the way back up to 42% right at the peak where it was during the obama presidency. so the question is why are people feeling a little better about the economy? of course,ou see this in some of t other pollss well. let's lookt three indicator that really homehen i cotondua and what they have. the first is disposable personal income. we've talked about the pressures on income on this show, and there are real pressures on incomes. but there's al a little bit of good news, which is real disposable per capita inco. that's a mouthful, b that's eiocket every month, has actually been on a pretty steady rise since last fall. and so if you look at trends, there's more money going into people's pockets, and they are spending it. consumer spending is up faster than it has bn in several years. a cond tng that' very rt tpl air prices. the loss of home equity was devastating. you're now seeing for the first time -- we've had some false starts as you see down here as the housing market hit bottom. but you're now seeing for the first time a rise in housing vaes that most economists believe is sustnabl thi
that president obama can take great credit for. >> stephen: you heard him right. the ottoman empire. it ruled the middle east for over 600 years until it finally collapsed in 1922. or did it? (cheers and applause) (laughter) it did. (laughter) but according to gohmert the ottoman empire is making a comeback with the help of barack obama. and we don't stand a chance, folks! the ottomans were known for their formidable weaponry. razor-sharp scimatars that could lop off your head and comfy padded foot stools that could trip up dick van dyke. (laughter) so get ready to go back to the days of suleiman the magive in sent and mepl mehmed the meh. our young men will be conscripted into the janissarys to guard the circumcision pa civil von at topkapi pal lals. mark my words. also, look them up on wikipedia. (laughter) congressman gohmert know it is economic impact this whole on our vital spice routes! oh, i hope you enjoy paying 13 kurus for a dram of fenugreek. suddenly gormeh sabzi is only a sometimes food. (laughter) and do not think that this new ottoman empire is going to be contained to the midd
or republican. if president obama is right that he has the power to say, it does not matter what our federal immigration laws are, i will ignore those laws. and it is not simply prosecutorial discretion. when you register, you are effectively here illegally. if the president can do that, i would be curious what mayor castro would think of a republican president who would begin erasing losses from the books. >> i thought we went through that a couple of years back. [laughter] [applause] >> let's actually talk about that. let's talk about a very specific instance. >> the biggest case in a year as solicitor general is a tragic crime in houston. two teenage girls were horribly murdered. the judicial arm of united nations issued an order to reopen the conviction of 51 murders. and the president, george w. bush, signed an order that attempted to order the state courts to obey the world courts. as solicitor general working for greg debora, on behalf of the state of texas, went before the supreme court and said that the president does not have the authority to unilaterally ignore the law. in fact, i
track/wrong track is going up at just the right time for president obama. >> right. in places like ohio, the economy's been better than it has been, at least across the country, on average. rich lawry has a smart column, a conservative columnist, piece in "politico" this morning where he talks about the effect that bill clinton's speech seems to have had on this race. that basically he did a better job than anyone else at saying any of the problems that are still out there, you can't dump them all on president obama. and lawry argues that that was an effective argument. it seems like since then the numbers have changed appreciably. and i think they're more linked to the convention than they are to the data ratner's talking about. there's no doubt everything he's pointed to is real, but i think politics and perception is often shaped by these big events and sort of how you feel emotionally, and that's what's getting picked up. >> all right. jim vandehei, packer fan, you can't get that win back, but we got the refs back. >> i'm still hoping we get that win back. >>> coming up next, a litt
would be right, that means the obama lead woo come down 3, 4, 5 points. there is some bias. obama is still ahead nonetheless. martha: lots to talk about here. monica, there are those who would look at this situation and all the outcry over the polls and say, when you're having a problem you will suddenly say that the polls are skewed. >> yeah. no, but i agree with doug. look, there are a couple things going on here. a lot of these polls are oversampling democrats as doug pointed out and overestimating the democratic turn grout they're saying democratic turnout will be greater than two thought and as doug says nobody believes that will be the case. there are a couple of things that these pollsters are missing that point to the enthusiasm gap that does point to republican advantage. look, early voter registration in a lot of these key states, including colorado show a republican advantage and early voting in some of these states including ohio now shows that the republicans now in terms of early voting are outpacing democrats. that is not being taken into account in a lot of these p
obama to decisively talk about the military option. do i have that right? >> absolutely. what i want is a black and white clear statement from the president to the people and the leaders of iran why are you undergoing sanctions. we're not going to let you develop a nuclear bomb. we're not going to tell you when, but we're telling you under no circumstances are we going to allow you to have a nuclear bomb. and if it comes to it, we will use the military option. now, the president's come close to saying that. he has said we'll do what we have to do. no option is off the table. we're using prevention, not containment, but i wish he would speak a little bit more clearly and stop some of his subordinates. after all, vice president biden condemned mitt rochl any for are you saying we should be readied to go to war? yes, we should be ready to go to war with iran and if we're ready to go to war with iran and iran knows it, we won't have to go to war with iran. >> and general clark, welcome back. he also writes that president obama has called the concerns over iran noise, quote/unquote, and t
new ad romney looks right at voters. >> president obama and i both care about poor middle class families, the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: barack obama was in ohio too talking less about his record and more about romney. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims. >> reporter: the auto bailout helps the president here. ohio unemployment is 7.2%, better than most states. >> i need you to register to vote. i need you to start voting six days from now on october 2nd. >> reporter: early voting. they started last friday in south dakota. i'm steve handlesman, nbc news, washington. >>> as world leaders at the united nations discuss violence in syria, rebel forces attacked the capital and reported the deadliest day of the civil war there. more than 340 people are reported to have died yesterday in fighting across the country. in damascus a white van exploded outside a military command center. a second bomb went off about ten minutes later inside the compound and gun battle went on fo

president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
? >> right now obama in the polls is at 53%. it means it is not good enough for romney to pick up the undecided voters. which might mean like a crisis and you rup. the bullish sign has been in the stock market which has been getting jittery like spain and europe. romney is running out of time like routine things like the debate. bill clinton told me that the debates are going to be crucial for romney. the first debate if he can turn around the 47% fiasco. it could be a disaster. the impression he gave that comes with being a wealthy detached guy not caring about people who need help. what would you recommend he do? >> i think the 47% comment revealed, he wasn't doing what you should do play to the center. he has written off peak who have the median income and below. the text book strategy is can you find a way. he is not taughting out ideology saying i can be a reasonable manager. that was his message at first sand he is trying to find different approaches which is what you do when you are losing and he should have stuck to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick pa
. >> eric: all right. here is president obama tuesday. >> there are no words to excuse the killing of innocence. there is no video this justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eric: kimberly, now we know that the obama administration labeled at it terrorist attack, so they could release intelligence in the area. but for better part of two weeks they have been denying it was terrorism and blame it on the movie. is there ever a reason for the president of the united states to lie to the american people? >> kimberly: no, there is not. in this particular situation it was glay grant. flagrant. if their lips are moving, they're lying. shameful behavior and weakened our position overseas internationally. people do not fear and respect the united states now because they know we will not act on it. we will instead do the 2012 apology tour. frankly, the american people are over it. it's outrageous that they lied. repeatedly over and over again. despite direct evidence to the contrary. >> eric: i want to get to you. i know you want to respond to that. andrea, immediately after, we said are they
ever place in against iran, president obama has done that and reserved the right if absolutely necessary at the end of the day for the united states to use force. he is putting it out. he wants to focus on deputy. i worked for csh on the iran issue over three years, there's a remarkable similarity to me between the george w. bush policy in iran and the barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressman and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for the policy that the last two american presidents have undertaj. we don't want to go to war or open the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after afghanistan and iraq. we to focus on the diplomacy. we want to be tough minded and protect real israel and protect our finds in the arab world. i think that's what he's trying to do. i think it's a sensible policy we ought to give him the time or governor romney the time to negotiate with the iranians last point i'll make is an interesting fact that we have not had a sustained substantiative conversation with the irania
is not a high priority. >>> right now, president obama and governor mitt romney are fighting for votes in virginia. the two campaigns both made stops in virginia today.
states. three in particular. in ohio, president obama the key of all of the swing states, right? no republican -- i'm sure you've heard this. i want to repeat it. no republican candidate for president has won the presidency without winning ohio ever, ever, ever. so it's critical for mitt romney. president obama is up in ohio today 53 to 43 points. president obama is up in florida, another key swing state, 53 to 44 points. president obama is up in pennsylvania 54 to 42 points. so 10 in ohio. 9 in florida. 12 in pennsylvania. by the way this is not part of "the new york times" poll. but i just happened to see this morning in california more leccorral votes than any other state. president obama is up 57 to 35. a 22--point advantage in california. back to the cbs poll. in ohio, president obama leads among key constituency, leads among women by 25 points. so don't tell me paul ryan's good for the republican ticket, right? 25 points. that puts -- that means that the issue of contraception the issue of abortion,
. there are a lot more people available to vote. for obama the demographic is the right one including a number new hispanic voters who are legal. >>neil: actually i agree with you. to republicans who try to say they are skewed, they may or may not be, i have no idea, but they are beyond the margin of error. you remind me yourself, that can change. for now i would not take comfort in the possibility they are all rigged. to the bigger point of where we stand right now, you have been through elections where the lead is up-and-down and even mondale led. what gets the math to coalesce around a guy? >>guest: the history of this thing, for 50 years people who have been ahead at this stage in the presidential race have always won. it is --. >>neil: jimmy carter? >>guest: he was behind at this stage of the game. >>neil: in october there were polls he was ahead? we >>guest: it was very close. did you have to say that right in the middle of my segment. i am here as an expert. please don't interrupt me. >>neil: you are right. i don't mean a word of it but whatever makes you star you are a big star. >>guest: n
